Moderating Climate Change Hysteria
On April 14th,
2018, environmentalist David Buckel committed suicide by setting
himself on fire with gasoline to protest "global warming" after one of
the coldest winters on record. Climate change, a.k.a. global warming, has become
a pathological Orwellian faith based doomsday religion that
has sailed far away from honest science. Speculation is not the same as proof, yet many are frightened and/or titillated
that mankind is headed for certain annihilation. I do not welcome
mass death, but many Christians who believe in End Times theology seem
to long for it. I cannot help but notice how much climate change
enthusiasts and Christian doomsayers have in common in terms of their
basic subconscious psychology. Passionate
Christians can see the face of Jesus in a random stain on a wall.
Passionate climate change enthusiasts see Niagara Falls freezing
under record low temperatures as a sign of global warming. "There is no propensity for CO2 to store heat in a systematic way over time to produce a climate change effect."
Dr. Rex J. Fleming, former NOAA climate scientist
As a scientific
climate change due to atmospheric carbon dioxide levels has as many
loopholes as a rodeo, and is about as accurate as
astrology. Global warming theology is an invigorating new age
doomsday religion that puts Mother Nature on the Cross instead of
Jesus. Many fall in love with the art of
climate change fearmongering, which feeds an unhealthy psychological
need. Can you imagine
Albert Einstein throwing a tantrum and branding anyone who does not believe in his theories
"traitors," "heretics," and "deniers"? If we don’t do what
the high priests of climate change say, we will all burn in the hell of
global warming. Their hysterical
war against carbon dioxide will only produce mass suicide through
starvation, because all life on Earth, our own bodies, and our food supply are
all made of CO2. Green scams are now an enormous trillion dollar
business worldwide, thriving on an idea that is contradicted by the
provable facts. See a hysterical AP news story from 1989 predicting doom, "U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked" "A
senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped
off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming
trend is not reversed by the year 2000." If they scare you, they can control you!
Satellite readings shows no global warming since 1998 and declining temperatures after 2016.
embraced climate change theology with glee.
Climate change proves that free markets are bad, that governments know
best, and that industrialized society is somehow sinful. If
one looks at the actual facts, it is certain that government efforts to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions have largely been economic,
environmental, and humanitarian disasters. In addition,
greenhouse gas emissions have increased worldwide despite all the
rules, regulations, and costly renewable energy projects. Much of
have done has only made matters worse, so my plea is for more
thoughtful consideration as to the negative effects of proposed climate
change cures. Many climate change true believers have now
become so hysterical that they have lost all rational perspective and
no longer care about the scientific method, freedom of speech, or the
welfare of the world's poor. Irrational fear is also a useful tool for profiteering. During the Y2K scare, thousands of computer programmers made billions of dollars
reprogramming old computers so they would not turn upon their masters when the calendar hit the year 2000. See Dr. Sallie Baliunas on burning weather witches in the 16th century.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC), the organization that governments look to for
justification for spending money on renewable energy projects and
carbon taxes, found that the Earth has not warmed since 1998
despite the fact that greenhouse gas emissions have increased. The acceleration in greenhouse gas release
was due in no small part to global biofuel farming, which dramatically
increased the production of CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide. So why did global warming stop in 1998 as
greenhouse gas emissions accelerated? That fact goes counter to
the basic premises of man made global warming theory.

Fraud is common among scientists testing drugs for
pharmaceutical companies. A strong profit motive or a heavy
belief system bias is not helpful to the proper implementation of the
scientific method, which requires neutrality and an open
mind. Government officials told climate scientists to cover up the fact
that Earth's temperature has not risen since 1998.
Climate data faking scandals — Read about the shocking IPCC climate change cover up scandal, "Climategate 2.0: New E-Mails Rock the Global Warming Debate," and "Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data." Read about the Australian climate fraud scandal and watch the five minute YouTube video of Dr. Judith Curry, “Climatologist Breaks the Silence on Global Warming Groupthink.” A 2017 study found global warming claims were based on manipulating temperature numbers. “On

Here are four quotes relevant to climate change enthusiasts.
"The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is that it wasn’t
originally a climate thing at all." -- "Do you guys think of it as
a climate thing?" -- "Because we really think of it as a
how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” — Saikat
Chakrabarti, chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
"Because the idea of climate change is so plastic, it can be deployed
across many of our human projects and can serve many of our
psychological, ethical, and spiritual needs." — Famous English socialist climate change advocate, Mike Hulme
"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change
provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality
in the world." — Former Canadian Minister of the Environment, Christine
"The challenge I think we have is for some reason climate change
has become a religion -- a politically induced religion instead of
science fact that now we have to embrace and move forward on."
— Former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy
The tactics of climate change true believers
are interesting. They keep changing the advertised
symptoms of global warming, which now mysteriously includes unusual
cooling. No matter what the weather is doing, climate change gurus can find an explanation that shows that human created
pollution is at fault. Any weather forecast has thus become a
win-win validation of their belief system.
The United States enjoyed a subnormal number of hurricanes
during the Obama Administration. Now that the hurricane dry spell
has been broken,
politicians are blaming global warming. One news anchor suggested
that the Paris climate agreement would end all hurricanes
forever. Why are silly people shocked and alarmed when it gets
hot in the summer, cold in the winter, that we have hurricanes during
hurricane season and tornadoes during tornado season? It’s called
“weather,” not “climate change.” When government fires scientists
who state that dangerous man made climate change has not occurred
while financially rewarding scientists who claim that the Earth is
burning up, then real science has been replaced by partisan
Dr. Roger Pielke, a climatologist and environmental risk assessment specialist at the University of Colorado, gave Senate testimony that “It
is misleading and just plain incorrect to claim that disasters
associated with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have
increased on climate timescales either in the United States or
globally.” - “It is further incorrect to associate the increasing costs
of disasters with the emission of greenhouse gases.” - “Hurricanes have
not increased in the U.S. in frequency, intensity or normalized damage
since at least 1900.” - “The same holds for tropical cyclones globally
since at least 1970.”
Warren Buffett, the liberal billionaire who manages the Berkshire Hathaway investment fund, says the insurance companies
his fund owns have not had to change the way they calculate the
likelihood of financial losses due to global warming because there has
been no increase in climate based disasters. [see news story] Buffett said, “I
think that the public has the impression that because there has been so
much talk about climate, that events of the last 10 years, from an
insured standpoint on climate, have been unusual.” - “The answer is, they haven’t.” - “You read about these events (today), but you (also) read about events 30, or 40, or 50 years ago.”
The temperature increase Earth experienced after the
end of the Little Ice Age (approximately 1300 to 1870) up to about 1940 was not
caused by man made greenhouse gas release because industrial output
during those years was too low to make any significant difference.
Industrial output and CO2 emissions increased dramatically during
World War II and during the post war economic boom, but the Earth's
temperature dropped after 1940 until about 1975. By the early 1970s the weather had become so cold that there developed fear of an oncoming ice age. If CO2 was the driving force behind
temperature increases, the Earth would have experienced vigorous
heating during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, not remarkable cooling.
and other famous global warming gurus have been dreadfully wrong about
many important issues. Their mistakes have killed millions of innocent people, not
just inconvenienced them. Al Gore enthusiastically supported
biofuels as a replacement for oil, but later admitted that corn ethanol
was 'not a good policy.' By
any reasonable estimate, global biofuel production has killed far more
people worldwide during the 1993 to 2013 time frame than all wars and
acts of terrorism combined over the same time period. The higher you raise the price of fertilizer,
farmland, and food all over the world, the more people die of
malnutrition and related illness.
Al Gore, like T. Boone Pickens, championed
wind power as a way to save the world, but industrial
wind energy schemes have proven to be both an economic and ecological
disaster wherever they have been tried. T. Boone Pickens finally
gave up on wind power and stated that "He
(Obama) needs to explain to his people, ‘Hey, we can get on everything
green. We can get on everything renewable. Then the cost of
power will go up ten times." Absurdly
costly wind and solar projects were one of the main causes of the
collapse of Spain's economy, and are now leading to the gradual
deindustrialization of Europe. See Germany’s Green Energy Disaster.
John Coleman was a respected
meteorologist who co-founded The Weather Channel. Before John
passed away, he produced "How the Global Warming Scare Began."
This highly entertaining 36 minute YouTube video details Al
Gore's rise to political and financial power through creating climate
hysteria. Coleman explains the origins of the carbon dioxide
based global warming theory in America, which he handily disproves by simply showing the audience the proven facts. John's good natured humor and wit are a powerful bonus.

FOOD = ENERGY & ENERGY = FOOD is
equation I devised to remind people that it takes so much energy to
produce, transport, and safely store food that any increase in the
price of energy immediately results in food cost inflation.
Absurdly priced wind and solar power schemes, if implemented to any
significant degree, will always result in absurdly priced food that
only the wealthy can afford to eat. The renewable
energy fad was created by the wealthy and by corrupt politicians pandering to profit hungry special
groups: ...Big Biofuel, Big Wind, and Big Solar. Their “green” ideas starve the poor yet produce no
significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions as a benefit. You cannot control the weather with windmills and
solar panels any more than you can control the weather with rain dances, bowling
balls, and statues of dead presidents.
conducted by our federal government’s own National Research Council
states that windmills and solar schemes are ineffective at reducing greenhouse gas
emissions to any significant degree. Unreliable and intermittent wind and
solar power schemes always require fossil fuel back-up, and lots
of it. The study found that biofuel
production increases greenhouse gas emissions rather than decreasing them.
Oil products are "green" compared to biofuels.
Are these climate change authority figures fallible human beings?
Michael E. Mann
The facts show that renewable energy schemes other
and geothermal power are of no economic or environmental value. Please see my musical YouTube videos, The Global Biofuel Disaster and Windmills Kill Birds. You can find many good articles on the climate change controversy at climatedepot.com. For details of better clean energy energy
please see The Renewable Energy Disaster.
